for president obama as he starts his second term, a pretty heated issue left over from the first term. in one word, benghazi. the secretary of state, hillary clinton, is going to go to capitol hill tomorrow and she's going to have to answer some pretty tough questions from some of her toughest critics, all about the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador to libya last september. ambassador chris stevens died along with three other americans in an assault against the u.s. mission in benghazi. mrs. clinton was supposed to testify last month but she was forced to postpone due to an illness, a concussion and a blood clot near her brain. here are some pictures on monday as mrs. clinton made her way towards the inaugural ceremonies. you can see a service member beside her, but she is on the arm of her husband and needs no additional attention or certainly assistance of any kind. but make no mistake, that was quite an illness she went through. our wolf blitzer is live with us from washington, d.c. wolf, i just want to ask you. as we continue the process of trying find answers as to why what happened
